Sorry, I can't help with your query. But, without wanting to hijack your thread, where is the pic taken from? That FMIC is enormous :).

Cool. That is the setup I talked about getting like 360HP from the upgraded turbo kit 845 is selling. That's how big the FMIC should have been from the factory but then again, we're not paying EVO/STI money are we?

Do you know who developed the front plate bracket? Would like that on my car.

As for filling the emblem it would require paint with the new part so just pull the badge and get some Epoxo-88 and fill it in and have it repainted. Epoxo-88 is a flexible filler for urethane bumpers.

Thanks everyone, appreciate all the replies!

Hey 6th im interested in shopping a lot of your bolt ons is there any way we can work on shipping costs? shipping to Toronto, Ca is costly especially with customs

Remember the 360hp is going to be with forged internals and all supporting mods and a wicked tune and a m/t car. A/T cars have a bit more work to do to get that number to the ground.

Bah, the parts aren't the scary part it's the down time in the shop and labour cost. Replacing internals like forged pistons and rods and if something were to go wrong you can probably kiss your warranty goodbye.

Your warranty is gone as soon as you open the motor. To replace the parts yourself isn't that hard but it does take some time
